Subject: Bordering On Parody
My god you'd think those were two medical school applicants staying in a hotel across from the school, and its the evening before that big make ya or break ya interview. I can't think of any other event that would have kids acting in such an obsessive compulsive manner.
The movie implies that they do this everyday. Well, I guess they do - that is, any day that the film crew from Coronet is in house. Anything for a paycheck.
Those people at the breakfast table...oh, they have parents? I thought they were orphans up until that scene. Geez those kids do everything in that house....I thought the boy was gonna resole his shoes right there in the kitchen.
Girls sure spent a lot of time combing their hair in those days. I mean, if you've seen a few of these films, think about it.
Subject: DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!
Do not fall for this!!!! They are lying to us!!!!
If you go to be right after polishing your nails, your fingernails will be so fuzzy they will look like you have glued cotton balls to them!
Sue is trying to get you to have fuzzy nails so she will look better than you!!!!!!!
Sue is mean.
Subject: Golly Jeepers They Look Neat!
This Coronet film should be shown to all those kids with their pants falling of their hips and their underwear hanging out. Not to mention the girls who dress like streetwalkers. What happened to the idea that being clean and neat in appearance showed respect for yourself and the others that had to look at you all day.
Did anyone notice that the bedroom was the same one from Dick York's insomnia film?
Subject: Lots Of Extra SpareTime !
When you have a lots of extra spare time, you can spend it all on grooming! This film seems so idealisitic and regimented when compared to today's living. Of course, people had different
standards back in 1949.

....if only life were as simple for me as it is for John and his sister
Subject: Or: How to make your friends laugh at you
Don and sue, two, oh why don't I just say it now, obsessive compulsive kids, are almopst fanatical in their everyday cleaning habits. Buttons sewn on! shirts ironed! nails clean! matching clothes! The narrators, apparently the work load required 2 narrators, bubble along happily as if this type of behavior is normal. Pretty standard fare. Bonus points: The father figure is in "Are you ready for marriage?"
